Manufacturing.net
The skills gap, or the documented gap between the number of manufacturing jobs available and the number of talented workers available to fill those positions, was undeniably one of the hottest topics in manufacturing in 2014. In her article "Why The Manufacturing Skills Gap Is Serious," Anna Wells, Executive Editor of IMPO, writes, "In an industry that has yet to recover the jobs lost in the recession, we're dealing with vacancies in the skilled trades that threaten to derail production growth and sector expansion." While the economy is in the process of recovering from the recent economic recession, it is essential that the manufacturing sector continues to grow stronger.
